In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the information essential to go the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved commonplace and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston college, college of Chicago, collage of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, collage of Maryland, collage of Michigan, Michigan nation, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, collage of Tennessee at Knoxville, and the college of Wisconsin at Madison – and Moscow Institute of Physics and expertise. a variety of fabric is roofed and comparisons are made among comparable difficulties of alternative colleges to supply the coed with adequate details to think cozy and assured on the examination. Guide to Physics Problems is released in volumes: this publication, Part 2, covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics; Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics.

Praise for A advisor to Physics difficulties: half 2: Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, and Quantum Mechanics:

"… A advisor to Physics difficulties, half 2 not just serves an immense functionality, yet is a excitement to learn. via opting for difficulties from diversified universities or even diverse medical cultures, the authors have successfully shunned a one-sided method of physics. the entire difficulties are solid, a few are very attention-grabbing, a few definitely exciting, a number of are loopy; yet them all stimulate the reader to contemplate physics, no longer in basic terms to coach you to move an examination. i myself got substantial excitement in operating the issues, and that i might bet that any one who desires to be a certified physicist may adventure comparable amusement. … This e-book can be an outstanding aid to scholars and professors, in addition to a resource of delight and enjoyment." (From Foreword via Max Dresden)

"An first-class source for graduate scholars in physics and, one expects, additionally for his or her teachers." (Daniel Kleppner, Lester Wolfe Professor of Physics Emeritus, MIT)

"A great choice of difficulties … Thought-provoking, interesting, and simply simple enjoyable to solve." (Giovanni Vignale, division of Physics and Astronomy, college of Missouri at Columbia)

"Interesting certainly and relaxing. the issues are creative and their suggestions very informative. i'd definitely suggest it to all graduate scholars and physicists regularly … rather valuable for academics who wish to take into consideration difficulties to offer of their course." (Joel Lebowitz, Rutgers University)

"A very completely assembled, fascinating set of difficulties that covers the most important components of physics addressed via Ph.D. qualifying assessments. … Will turn out most respected to either school and scholars. certainly, I plan to take advantage of this fabric as a resource of examples and illustrations that would be labored into my lectures." (Douglas turbines, collage of California at Irvine)
